Stress is the body’s natural physical and mental reaction to today’s hectic life. Stress hormones trigger your body’s “fight or flight” response: increasing your heart and breathing rates, constricting your blood vessels, and readying your muscles to respond to a perceived threat. Chronic stress can cause a variety of symptoms which can affect your overall well-being. Symptoms of chronic stress can include:
- Premature Aging
- Heart Disease& High Blood Pressure
- Sleep Loss
- Weight Gain
- Hair Loss
Vibrance Health will soon be offering meditation, breathing, and yoga classes. Classes will be guided by Birgitta Nielsen, a certified yoga instructor who has recently returned from India where she studied Hatha and Yin yoga, meditation, pranayama (breath work) and Chakra balancing. For many of our patients, a yoga and meditation practice can be the key to stress and anxiety relief and a path to good health. If you haven’t visited Dr. Clair in our office at The Landing in Westlake Village, this would be a perfect opportunity to come visit the office and experience the benefits that Birgitta’s teachings offer.
Stress Management through the practice of yoga can help you feel your very best at any age.
